Selfless Signal-Boosting Wednesday

These signal-boosting posts are a complement to our long-standing Shameless Self-Promotion Sundays, this thread is for recommending someone else‘s writings/events. Use this thread for ICYMI links and anything else you think other readers might find interesting.

Especially welcome are links to those who are blogging on issues Feministe has not recently addressed (the links can be to older posts, just something you’ve found recently relevant).  Please save the self-promotion links for this Sunday – use this thread to let Feministe readers know about the other blogs you love to read, and activist/celebration events you long to attend, especially from those on the margins of the mainstream social justice communities, who tend to not get as much exposure as they should.

Netiquette Guidelines:

  1. Effective signal boosting names the article author(s) and/or organising bodies.
  2. Include content notes/trigger warnings/NSFW alerts where needed as a courtesy to other readers.
  3. Keep this thread focussed on the linking – the idea is to make your comments on the other blogs being linked!  (seconding/thirding etc is fine, adding extra Content Notes for the benefit of other readers is a community service, linking further/related reading is always welcome, but keep it short and sweet)
  4. If you have Reasons to not leave a response on a recommended article, don’t just dump it on this thread  ~ analytical discussions about various links belong on the Open Thread or Spillover.

    Scarleteen is seeking financial support to avoid having to strike on May 1st. I hear a lot of vocal support for what ST does but I know they’re chronically under-funded.

    [Moderator Note: This seems to belong on the Shameless Self Promotion thread. Please take note of which sort of links belong on which signal-boosting thread.]

    sj, normally a book blogger, wrote about the taking back the word slut and being condemned for that.

    Hey, I’m wondering if we could get a thread on Marissa Alexander and perhaps a signal boost for the final week of her fundraiser?

    Especially given that the same prosecutor who couldn’t hang a conviction on Zimmerman is now seeking to give her 60 years.

      That’s an excellent suggestion, EG. On it.

    I mean, thanks! (The exclamation point is key, I feel as an English prof!)
